The “Roaring 20s” comes to ‘Jazz at Jamison’ 

‘Jazz at Jamison’ on 14 April 2024 will feature the much-anticipated return of Geoff Power’s Great Gatsby Orchestra. Modelled on the famous Vince Giordano’s Nighthawks based in New York, but as Geoff notes, without a violin, this acclaimed 11-piece orchestra will delight and entertain you with its mix of hot jazz, dance music and novelty songs from the 1920s and 1930s and into the Swing Era.

You’ll hear music from Sidney Bechet, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Artie Shaw, Fats Waller, Lu Watters, to name a few, plus tributes to the great Australian bands and players such as Graeme Bell’s All Stars.

Geoff Power is one of this country’s most accomplished jazz musicians and his Great Gatsby Orchestra is a project dear to his heart with 5 members of his very talented family joining him in the line-up. Geoff Power’s Great Gatsby Orchestra has two critically acclaimed albums to their credit, Jubilee Stomp in 2016 and Shake That Thing in June 2021. 

Don’t miss what will be an exceptional musical experience of a very high order!
